lost of whining and stuff below the readmore! just venting a bit
i think there was a period of about half a year after i graduated when i learned to dress myself and i was like “maybe, in theory, i’m in the ‘prime of my life’ and i don’t look weird”
now i’m like “well, maybe my serial lack of anything dating-wise, online or off, is because i’ve always looked weird and awkward”
which is ridiculous, but maybe it’s not ridiculous? like “”objectively”” i’ve been on a dating site for two years with literally one person clicking into my profile per week through multiple different profile pictures. like, that’s not really ‘things crappy for now’ when it’s sustained. maybe that’s the universe sending me a sign
there’s people who are like ‘everyone’s attractive to someone' which always seems to me to be like 'so maybe you're not trying hard enough? you fucking weirdo? loser idiot?'
the last time i honest to god started freaking out was in taiwan when my mom and my brother were buying me clothes and they were like “no, that’s too tight” “…that’s too tight too”, and then at their suggestion i ended up with an XL shirt that was just huge and baggy and i was like “oh my god, what if i’ve been making a terrible mistake with shirts that touch my body at points other than my shoulders”
like i felt like i was so full of myself, pretending my body exists for any reason other than to keep my head ~5 feet off the ground, and that everyone was like “get a load of this guy, trying to look good. nothing will help you look good guy.”
ANYWAY so i’ll probably go back on okcupid after i convince myself that, i dunno, it’s ley lines or w/e

- wizard 2: did you catch that quidditch game yesterday?
writing an e-mail to a guy who used to come down from the high school to “mentor” me in elementary school. not like any kind of “we’re paying you to teach welpmeout math” but more like “hang out with this kid for an hour and do activities”. we pretty much totally fell out of contact after the middle of middle school
like dang like, that’s basically an entire lifetime of events
actually going to delete that expendables post for the moment, pointing people to my tumblr / twitter while judging / the contest is running and want to be a bit more focused than a rant I wrote in sophomore year 😬
also playing a ton of Crypt of the Necrodancer and dang it is really good.
i play all of albert’s games while he’s in the room so that when i get confused i can just be like “what’s happening” and he can explain it to me, not because it’s not well made but because i am uniquely bad at games
it provides valuable insight into how the things i take for granted are completely alien to people who’ve never played computer games, such as my mother.

Neil Cicierega - Pokémon
Via tchotchkenation, who writes: “The entire album is varying levels of insanity, but reporters talking about Pokémon over the track to the Jackson 5’s ‘I Want You Back’ is so far one of my favorites so far.”

if you have the opportunity Rollercloser and Crocodile Chop are also standouts.
first cut of the trailer to 2:22 AM which is probably the name of the game unless i wake up in the middle of the night going “eureka! i’ll call it funwise night mirrors”
not sure if this will succeed even on a purely “hey look at this thing” level but here’s hoping!
